San Francisco Zona 4 Group's story

Aura Marina, 53, is married and has a sixth grade education. Five of her six children are adults and one is still in school. She started her catering business when she decided to become independent after working as a cook. She has 26 years' experience in the sector and receives support from her husband.

Aura Marina has organized a group to request a loan that she will use to buy food supplies since she has several orders to fill. She will buy sugar, corn, oil, rice, beans, eggs and other cooking supplies. In the near future she would like to have a well-appointed shop to generate more income. The other members of the group are involved in catering, tortilla sales and clothing sales.

In this group: Aura Marina , Nancy Paola , Gloria Otilia , Teresa Rossana , Florinda Francisca
